Support for Republican presidential primary hopeful Nikki Haley is surging in in New Hampshire, according to a recent report by The Boston Herald.
Haley’s strategy of “hard truths” is paying off, the Herald said Thursday, because her campaign event crowd sizes have been growing larger.
As one of the earliest voting states in the 2024 GOP primary, winning Republican voters in the Granite State is hugely important if Haley has any hope of knocking former President Donald Trump from his front-runner status.
Introduced by Gov. Chris Sununu, Haley has a massive polling gap — almost 50 points — that she’ll need to make up if she has any hope of becoming the Republican presidential nominee.
Her strategy is to be contrarian, it seems.
“I’m going to tell you my hard truth, because I don’t think Americans get the hard truth on this,” she told a crowd on Wednesday.
Haley said Republicans were partly to blame for the lackluster COVID response and spending spree. She said a nationwide abortion ban wasn’t feasible because the bill doesn’t have a realistic chance to pass in the U.S. Senate.
And she said President Joe Biden hasn’t supported Ukraine correctly in their fight against Russian invaders.

“We had no better friend in the United Nations than Ukraine,” she said. “You had this free country, and here this thug goes and invades their country and tries to take it.”
Haley said that helping Ukraine defeat Russia will send a clear message to rivals of the United States around the world.
“Russia said after they take Ukraine, it’s Poland and the Baltics, and then we’re in a war because those are NATO countries,” she said. “That’s what we’re trying to prevent.”
“If Ukraine wins, not only do we take care of everything Russia is doing, it sends the biggest message to China not to invade Taiwan, it sends a message to Iran to stop building a bomb, it sends a message to North Korea to stop testing ballistic missiles. That’s why we’re doing this,” Haley told the crowd.
But don’t take our word for it. We want to hear your thoughts.
